The WHO forecasts 700 million people would have "profound hearing loss by 2050," largely from loud music during festivals and concerts.

"Generally, EDM (electronic dance music) festivals can range between 100 and 120 dB, which, over the course of several days at festivals like Glastonbury or Boomtown, can have negative effects on our hearing," the paper states. Apple believes the following noise levels and durations can cause temporary or permanent hearing loss - 80 dB: 5 hours and 30 minutes a day; 85 dB: 1 hour and 45 minutes; 90 dB: 30 minutes; 95 dB: 10 minutes; 100 dB: Even a few minutes

The focus of this report is 23 dB of active noise cancellation. This "makes a huge difference" at excessively loud events like music festivals, claims Highsnobiety. The AirPods Pro's 23-decibel Active Noise Cancelling makes it easy to use them for extended periods of time in noisy places. An Apple Watch notification can be useful in noisy surroundings. The new AirPods Pro 2's Adjustable Transparency feature is a fantastic method to safeguard your hearing at loud occasions like music festivals. This function allows for the partial transmission of internal noises while reducing background noise. Apple advises using this feature with automobile horns, construction equipment, and event loudspeakers.
